TEKKEN'S A KNOCKOUT; 5 games to be won.

IT'S back and it's better than ever. Yep, Tekken 3, the third instalment in the first-rate beat- 'em-up series, has arrived.

And to celebrate, Mega has five Sony PlayStations, five Tekken 3 games and five dual-shock joysticks to give away.

Tekken 3 boasts state-of-the-art gameplay and new, highly-detailed characters. Like its predecessors, the gameplay is flawless and there are new combos, attacks, counter-moves and defences.

And while Tekken 2 battles took place along a fixed axis, Tekken 3 characters can dodge left and right to avoid attacks.

The game and the storyline are very complex, but here's the basic idea. Heihachi's Tekken Force reports sighting the mysterious God of Fight while excavating Native American ruins. Meanwhile, Jin Kazama, wants to avenge his family, killed by this God of Fight.

Jin asks his grandfather, Heihachi, to teach him how to destroy the god, and Heihachi stages a King of the Iron Fist tournament to entrap the God of Fight.

For a chance to win one of our great prizes, just tell us the name of Heihachi's grandson. Call 0640 802 831 with your answer. Tekken 3 is rated 11, so you must be 11 or over to enter this contest.

CHILDREN'S ITV presenters Stephen Mulhern and Danielle Nicholls are a talented pair.

Danielle, 19, is the former All England Modern Dance Champion and 21- year-old Stephen is the youngest ever member of the Magic Circle.

Stephen was just 16 when he became the resident magician at the famous London shop Harrods, entertaining such celebrity guests as Bruce Willis.

But Princess Diana give him his most memorable moment.

"I'd been told you weren't supposed to speak to royalty unless they spoke to you," he says. "But I got so excited when I saw Di I asked her if she wanted to see the fastest magic trick in he world. She just carried on walking.

"But then she came back and said, 'What is this trick?'. So I made one of her rings disappear."

Stephen, who comes from Stratford, in London, will be performing most of his magic on TV with Danielle. "We are a great partnership," says Danielle.

Catch Stephen and Danielle every weekday on CITV between 3.25 and 5.10pm and Sundays from 9.25am.
